Defence Ministry concerned over Asma’s statement
RAWALPINDI: A spokesman of the Defence Ministry on Thursday expressed concerns over a statement of Asma Jahangir, a senior Supreme Court lawyer and human rights activist, that her life is in danger, says a press release.
Asma has accused intelligence agencies of being part of a plot to assassinate her. This is a very serious allegation, which should be articulated in an appropriate legal manner by her. Rather than raising the matter through the media, it will serve her personal security and national interest that she lodges a complaint and provides the necessary evidence so that the matter can be properly investigated and appropriate steps taken.
